It is almost here. Probably some people have asked you the same question during these days. What will you do on Halloween? Do you have any plan? Maybe you are actually asking yourself the same. What do I do on Tuesday evening and on a free Wednesday?
We would like to present you here some of the best events to have a Halloween to remember in Barcelona.
Halloween Party at Poble Espanyol
Attractions and related decoration will invade the area of Poble Espanyol on Wednesday from 5 pm. Face painting, costumes, trick or treat… and 100 dancing zombies. If you are looking for a local party this is your event.
Castanyes (roasted chestnuts) is perhaps the most famous food to be found in Barcelona around the time of All Saints Day. It is very common to find vendors in the street with a small shop where people queue for getting some roasted chestnuts in a newspaper. You definitely have to try it.
Somoslas: Night of the dead
Apolo’s gay-friendly indie party celebrates Halloween with skulls, ghosts, skeletons and corpses. Electro-pop music in a party where you can get in free before 1:30 wearing a costume.
